Since I knead with hands, it is slightly tough in the beginning. However the bread turns out so beautiful after kneading for a while. The best part was that I enjoyed stuffing it with dark chocolate. The drizzle was almost a last moment thought.The bread was planned as I cooked so there was no idea that I will end up with something like this.
The kids were restless to dig into the pan and I literally had to pull it for some clicks first. Hubby Dear got me Nikon D 3300 and I am struggling with it still. I am hoping I pick up the knack quickly.
Meanwhile you can enjoy this treat!
For the bread
All purpose Flour / Bread Flour – 3 cups
Instant yeast – 2 1/4 tsp
Warm Milk – 3/4 cup
Sugar – 2 tbsps
Unsalted Butter – 1/4 cup
Salt – 1/2 tsp
Warm Water – 2 tbsp
Dark Chocolate, grated as required (I used about 1/2 cup)
For the glaze
Fresh Cream – 1 cup
Dark Chocolate – 3/4 cup
Icing Sugar – 2 to 3 tbsp
How to make the Bread
In a wide bowl, take all the ingredients except water and mix well. Depending on the softness of the dough add water to knead into a pliable dough.
Cover and let it rise for over 1.5 hrs or 2 hrs. Mine was done before 2 hrs.
Divide into equal balls. Roll out well and in the center place the grated dark chocolate and cover well. Continue with all the balls.
Place in a greased pan one next to other, and let it rise for the second raise.
It took about 30 mins for the second rise.
Preheat the oven to 195 C and bake for 20 mins.
Baking time might differ based on ovens. Mine got done in 18 mins.
For the Drizzle
Heat the cream in a nonstick pan, add the icing sugar and let the cream cook. Then add the grated dark chocolate and whisk well.
